Improving Capacity Planning for Important Environment Research with DHI Group

In case you missed the press release that we issued on Wednesday this week, the DHI Group -  a long-standing customer of Bright Computing - has once again chosen Bright technology to underpin its new compute environment. And, I’m pleased to say that the DHI Group will be putting us to good use. They will leverage the full-featured Bright Cluster Manager software platform to support pioneering environmental research projects; a matter close to all of our hearts.

DHI Group (Danish Hydraulic Institute) is an expert in solving tough challenges in water environments, such as rivers, reservoirs, oceans, and coastlines. When they decided to  modernize their platform to support their clients’ increasingly complex computational requirements, DHI Group selected a Dell solution which includes Bright Cluster Manager.

Bright provides comprehensive management of DHI Group’s new supercomputing infrastructure, enabling them to administer HPC resources as a single entity, provisioning the hardware, operating systems, and workload managers from Bright View, our unified web interface. DHI Group is hopeful that with Bright, they will be able to manage more computations simultaneously, process them more quickly, and achieve results faster.

It’s good to see that the new supercomputer gives DHI Group the compute power and resources that they need, and they have much better control over workload management and capacity planning using Bright’s intelligent monitoring and automation capabilities to manage resources more effectively and efficiently. 

I have also talked to DHI Group about how easy it is to cloud burst with Bright for additional power, so I’ll be interested to see if they take advantage of this feature in the future.  

In the meantime, we at Bright are thoroughly enjoying supporting this dynamic customer who is carrying out such important environmental research. We look forward to a strong and healthy future together.
